Base Camp Trips
FOOT also offers trips for students more interested in day hikes than backpacking trips. Instead of carrying everything with them from one campsite to another, students who participate in these trips camp in tents at the base of one of the following hiking regions. During the day, leaders will take students on day hikes around the region exploring everything the area has to offer! Sometimes groups will hike to nearby mountain peaks, visit waterfalls, and enjoy lunch overlooking the scenic New England countryside. These trips are appropriate for students of all levels of experience and ability.
We offer day hike trips in the White Mountains, Catskills, and along the AT trail. For more information on what type of terrain to expect, please refer to the different region descriptions.
